International Holocaust Remembrance Day, London, 27.01.2022

On 27.01.2022, we remember one of the darkest and most tragic chapters in human history – the Holocaust.

This year, the entire world is commemorating the 77th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz Nazi Death Camp by the Soviet Army.

From 1941 to 1945, approximately two-thirds of Jews were methodically killed in Europe. In Auschwitz alone, more than 1.1 million men, women and children were murdered because of their ethnicity and religion.

For some this may be an abstract number from the events of the distant past, but for us, the death of a single human been is a tragedy. We cannot find the proper and strong enough words to condemn the inhumanity and cruelty of fascism.

Today, we express not only our respect for the survivors and the countless victims of the Holocaust, who all went through hell. We are raising awareness about the growth of racism, anti-semitism and xenophobia.

The voices of the victims and survivors have always reminded us of the fragility of peace, warning against human cruelty and intolerance. However, as time passes, it will be our responsibility to preserve and spread this knowledge of human nature to succeeding generations.

We strongly believe in the need to preserve this historical memory and prevent the falsification of history.

We have to use any opportunity to step up the fight against systemic attempts to glorify Nazism and revive intolerance in any form. This is not the problem of a certain country or nation - this is a global issue.

We stand for promoting peaceful coexistence and respect for human rights and dignity.

Peace relies on mutual understanding between nations and cultures and derives from knowledge of the past generations.

The memory of Holocaust victims should accompany us in our aspiration for a future, where such horrible events will never take place.
